What is Sciatica and How Can Chiropractic Biophysics Help?
Sciatica is a common condition that causes lower back, knee, and leg pain. This pain can range from an uncomfortable numbness to intolerable pain. Symptoms can consist of hip pain, difficultly with leg movement, pain in the buttocks when sitting, or difficultly standing without experiencing shooting leg pain. Knowing the source of your sciatica is important if you are suffering from this condition. Advanced Spine and Posture in Las Vegas wants you to know that there is a surgery-free solution to this pain.
What Causes Sciatica?
4 out of every 10 people will develop sciatica, or experience irritation of the sciatic nerve at some point in their life. Sciatica begins in the nerves of the lower back, which travels through the sciatic nerve in the leg. This causes the pain to travel to places such as the knee, thigh, or feet. Most people experience this pain on one side of the lower body. Any pressure on the nerves could cause potential pain in the leg. Some experience this pain as a sharp, shooting feeling throughout their entire leg, while others experience it as a dull numbness or tingling. Coughing, sneezing, or prolonged standing could all worsen the pain from the condition. A herniated disk, spinal stenosis, pregnancy, wearing heals, and back muscle spasms could all be potential causes of sciatica. But there is relief without surgery.
How Chiropractic Biophysics Can Help
Chiropractic BioPhysics combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health. That means your diagnosis – and treatment – will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles. Chiropractors use different techniques to alleviate sciatic pain depending on the severity of the condition. These treatments are non-invasive and help to find the source of the pain without risky surgical procedures.
Spinal adjustments can permanently eliminate pain over time. These adjustments will work to restore vertebral bodies to their correct position in the spine. It is important to remember that sciatica and other back pain could be the result of a more serious underlying condition. If you are experiencing symptoms similar to sciatica or any other back discomfort, visit a chiropractor immediately.
